Matt Pike of Sleep

Last night, San Jose stoner-rock pioneers Sleep played the first of two sold-out shows at Thalia Hall in Pilsen. The massive, tectonic trio have been on the reunion circuit since 2009, hammering out the hypnotic sludge of their 90s heyday. For the past few years, Neurosis drummer Jason Roeder has taken over the drums for the legendary metal band, supplying the oozing stomp that slowly propels them along. Rave reviews from last night’s show have been popping up, and I’m beyond stoked to see the heavy spectacle myself this evening (in like four hours).

Opening for Sleep both nights is the locally based experimental-industrial supergroup Corrections House, whose lineup features Sanford Parker (Minsk), Bruce Lamont (Bloodiest, Yakuza), Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), and Scott Kelly (Neurosis).

Photographer Alison Green was at last night’s show to capture the heaviness on film. Check out some of her photos of Sleep and Corrections House below.
